If you have ever tried to build a piece of furniture, or anything for that matter, you know the feeling… you get done and look at your accomplishment and say, “That did not turn out quite like I expected.”  When I first started learning how to build furniture it happened all the time.  I went into projects with grand expectations, but l...

Men Need to Be Home More

I am away from home on average about 14+ hours a day. Time spent away from my family adds up depending upon whether or not I’ve got any Spanish lessons scheduled after my regular work hours in my corporate gig. This all adds up quick to a lot of time apart from my family. We live in an age today where many of us commute to work, and that i...

A Marriage Creed: Professing and Defending Truth in a Time of Confusion

Don’t Be Confused About Your Real Home

In a wonderfully satirical passage from the beginning pages of Love in the Ruins, Walker Percy wrote of “the Roman Catholic remnant, a tiny scattered flock with no place to go” (Percy, p. 5).  The novel’s main character, Dr. Thomas More, says this “remnant” is one of three pieces into which the Catholic Church in his small town of Paradi...

Time is a Gift: Use it Well

You know the story: An old man is near death. His career was successful, providing well for his family. But he is nagged by a feeling that he wasn’t around enough.

Marxism Has Infiltrated Your Family

Have you ever sat down to a discussion with someone and an issue related to the family comes up (sex, marriage, children, contraception, abortion, etc.) and, after the tensions rise a bit, it seems as if this person is living in another world?  He may seem reasonable, yet somewhere there is a leap in logic that takes him to a world you’ve never ...

Why Men Love the Work of the Latin Mass

Work is the blessing and curse of man. Work is the vocation of man even before the Fall, as God placed Adam in the Garden to till and keep it. Work became a burden as a punishment for sin, but man works out his salvation toiling at his labor. Men are made for work and find fulfillment in it. Liturgy is a central expression of man’s vocation to...

Why I Don’t Write About Women & the Home

My interest in writing about what is clumsily called “men’s issues” happened accidentally.  I started working for Fraternus almost a decade ago and we started publishing newsletters for volunteers.  Fraternus trains men to mentor boys, but it became obvious early on that the harder issue was not “reaching boys”, but in having mentors wo...

There Are No Life Hacks

As the modern age was finally settling in to its total domination over the world, small groups of Catholics like G.K. Chesterton and Hillaire Belloc were sounding the alarm that our destruction was imminent.   One of their greatest fears, and the reason so much of their writing was a mystical mix of economic and philosophical theory, was that the...
